Yoda for Word Order

Introducing cases and nouns to my online class and so dug up this Yoda commercial. (I wanted something relatively quick, hence the commercial rather than a movie clip, and I liked that the non-Yoda essentially repeated what Yoda said in more conventional word order.) I followed up the video with the color-coded slide below. And the Milton quote is always a fun one: I ask who followed whom and use that to talk about case and inflection.
